Trollbridge Armours

by TomK32 - Competition Entry

Become a shopkeeper, craft weapons and sell them to the heroes. It's all HTML and javascript, bring a svg able browser.

The result is not very complete. You can craft, sell and buy but the tech tree just didn't want to work. Also the only browser to really use it is Safari/Webkit as I forgot to test with Firefox which has this odd behaviour with offsetTop and such...

I like this use of the theme, but the basic idea seems to be the same as BigBoyBlue's (http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2011/04/29/a-possible-idea-target-market/). Is that a coincidence?

I couldn't find a way to craft anything other than planks and wooden swords. I purchased some iron but there don't seem to be any recipes that use it. Am I missing something or is that part unfinished?

The character encoding errors are extremely distracting. If you are going to use characters outside the ASCII range you need to configure your web server to specify the character set you are using in the HTTP response headers (UTF-8, in your case).

Now I look again I see a whole bunch of people had roughly the same idea. These things happen I suppose! :)

@Dan just a coincidence and it's great to see the different results, and how much they differ! Always a good sign that you are having a good idea and a market for it :)

Didn't work... A pity, it seemed interesting :(

A neat idea, but I also couldn't craft anything other than wooden planks and wooden swords. Looks like you didn't have time to put in a proper set of recipes?

@Tang there are a few more but as the description says, the tech tree didn't want to work in the end.

Something is wrong with my Chrome installation at the moment so I am unable to play :( - looks interesting...

Nice try, pity it didn't work out... looked like an interesting idea.

Crafting and capitalism, like my two favoritest things in the world!

Great effort, and congrats on submitting for the LD!

Firefox 4 - I just get a blank window saying "false" :(

Interesting idea, but it wouldn't let me craft much of anything for some reason.
